Are these Access Points upgradable to LWAPP mode???

I was wondering which of the following access points are upgradable to LWAPP. Currently they are autonomous access points.

AIR-AP1231G-A-K9

AIR-AP1232AG-A-K9

AIR-AP1220B-A-K9

AIR-AP352E2R-A-K9

Thanks

Re: Are these Access Points upgradable to LWAPP mode???

Hi Nolan,

AIR-AP1231G-A-K9 = Yes

AIR-AP1232AG-A-K9 = Yes

AIR-AP1220B-A-K9 = No

AIR-AP352E2R-A-K9 = No

Migration from autonomous access point mode to lightweight mode is possible on these Cisco Aironet access point platforms:

•All 1121 access points

•All 1130AG access points

•All 1240AG access points

•All 1250 series access points

•For all IOS-based 1200 series modular access point (1200/1220 Cisco IOS Software Upgrade, 1210 and 1230 AP) platforms, it depends on the radio:

-if 802.11G, MP21G and MP31G are supported

-if 802.11A, RM21A and RM22A are supported

The 1200 series access points can be upgraded with any combination of supported radios: G only, A only, or both G and A.



Note For an access point that contains dual radios, if one of the two radios is an LWAPP-supported radio, the upgrade tool still performs the upgrade. The tool adds a warning message to the detailed log that indicates which radio is unsupported.

•All 1310 AG access points

•Cisco C3201 Wireless Mobile Interface Card (WMIC)



Note The second-generation 802.11a radios contain two part numbers.

Access points must be running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)JA or later before you can perform the upgrade.

From this good doc;

Upgrading Autonomous Cisco Aironet Access Points to Lightweight Mode

Hope this helps!
